This work presents the calculations of three-neutron(3n) resonance trajectories by solving Faddeev equations in momentum space for the states 3/2± and 1/2±. The neutron-neutron (nn) forces for the states 1S0, 3P0, 3P2 and 1D2 are of rank 2 [1]. This implies Faddeev calculations including up to 10 channels. To calculate the resonance positions the kernel of the Faddeev equations has to be analytically continued into the second energy sheet below the positive real energy axis by contour… 

Three-body resonances in pionless effective field theory

We investigate the appearance of resonances in three-body systems using pionless effective field theory at leading order with two complementary methods. The Faddeev equation is analytically continued

The extremes of neutron richness

A neutron star is pictured as a gigantic nucleus overwhelmed by the number of neutrons, unlike real atomic nuclei, that have a similar number of neutrons and protons. Is this true? What if we could

The quest for light multineutron systems

The long history of the research concerning the possible existence of bound or resonant states in light multineutron systems, essentially $$^3$$ n and $$^4$$ n, is reviewed. Both the experimental

Application of the complex scaling method in quantum scattering theory

This manuscript, presented to receive habilitated doctor degree, contains an overview of my recent works in developing complex scaling method and its applications in the few-body physics.



Subthreshold resonances in few-neutron systems

Three- and four-neutron systems are studied within the framework of the hyperspherical approach with a local S-wave nn-potential. Possible bound and resonant states of these systems are sought as

S -matrix pole trajectory in a three-neutron model

The eigenvalue equation to the Faddeev kernel is analytically continued on to nonphysical sheets adjacent to the real energy axis of the physical sheet. The position of the pole of the three-body $S$

Unbound states by analytic continuation in the coupling constant

The energies and widths of resonance states are determined by the analytic continuation of bound-state energies as functions of a potential strength parameter ({open_quotes}the coupling

Two-pole structure of the 3/2(+) resonance of 5He in a dynamical microscopic model.

By a realistic dynamical microscopic reaction approach to [sup 5]He we reproduce the empirical positions of the two [ital S] matrix poles associated with the 3/2[sup +] resonance, and unambiguously

Searching for three-nucleon resonances.

The search for three-neutron resonances which were predicted from pion double charge exchange experiments on {sup 3}He finds a state at {ital E}=14 MeV energy with 13 MeV width.

Quantum Monte Carlo calculations of nuclei with A 7

We report quantum Monte Carlo calculations of ground and low-lying excited states for nuclei with A{le}7 using a realistic Hamiltonian containing the Argonne v{sub 18} two-nucleon and Urbana IX
